R&B Jukebox Hits 1942

     
 

This series on Acrobat is generally credible but occasionally stretched to the breaking point. There are a couple of cases here where that happens, to be sure, but for the most part there are plenty of solid shakers and quakers on this 20-track set. Louis Jordan is here, as are Tampa Red, See more details below

Overview

This series on Acrobat is generally credible but occasionally stretched to the breaking point. There are a couple of cases here where that happens, to be sure, but for the most part there are plenty of solid shakers and quakers on this 20-track set. Louis Jordan is here, as are Tampa Red, Earl Hines, the King Cole Trio, and many of the WWII-era big bands burning through some R&B-oriented stompers swing style. Lil Green is also here with her big hit "Let's Be Friends," and a few hard driving moments from Duke Ellington and Bea Booze with the original "See See Rider Blues." But Paul Whiteman? Barney Bigard? Jimmie Lunceford? R&B? Uh uh. There's plenty of great stuff here, but there are some utterly bad choices as well.
